Trump toys with the media on leak sources

Washington Post:
The remarkable inconsistency of Trump’s attacks on the media

Are unidentified intelligence sources fabricated by journalists, or are they real people who need to be stopped? Both of the president's claims cannot be true.
Trump knows the leakers are real, but by challenging the media on their sources he puts pressure on them and their sources to reveal who is responsible for the leaks.  It is a pretty clever strategy and by drawing attention to the inconsistency he raises questions in the mind of voters about the honesty of the media.
